Reviews - What do customers think about Walking Between Worlds: A Novel of an American in Mexico?
Truly a stimulating and thought provoking novel Mar 21, 2002
I just finished reading Walking Between Worlds, and I enjoyed it very much. I loved the diary-type story and it gave me a new perspective on bridges, friendships, coincidences, dreams, and even predestination as well as religion and many other things. I honestly could not put the book down once I started reading it. When I got to the end of the novel I was relieved to learn that Roland had actually survived to tell his story. There were times while reading the novel when I was sure I would eventually learn that Roland would "meet his demise", and or succumb to some negative "higher powers". In fact, while reading it I "guessed ahead" that the book's ending would reveal someone else was writing this story from the deceased Roland's diary. So to me, the novel was a diary and also a mystery with a happy ending. I finally learned that Roland was smart enough and stubborn enough to survive in spite of some of life's most negative offerings. The novel also forced me to pause and give thought to several emotions and feelings (both positive and negative). Among those were loneliness, approval, rejection, trust, anger, lust, and even revenge. The book was truly a stimulating and thought provoking novel. Thanks so much Mr. Alquzok for writing Walking Between Worlds. It was a great novel, and I very much enjoyed reading it.
